Who won the Big Brother 12 finale? The answer to who won the Big Brother 12 finale came last night, as the finale came on a crowded night for reality shows. With America’s Got Talent, Masterchef and Top Chef choosing winners, CBS’ summer reality ending had to stand out from the crowd. Hayden Moss, Lane Elenburg and Enzo Palumbo tried to make that happen, but it was Hayden who won the Big Brother 12 finale, in a narrow vote over Lane.
To start the two-hour finale, the final four took part in one last “Head Of Household” competition. In this case, the winner would get to evict one of the other two finalists, and choose their competition for the final round.
To narrow down who would win the Big Brother 12 finale, the Head of Household competition finally came down to Hayden vs Lane. But when they finished tied in the final quiz phase, the two had to hold a tiebreaker.
The first phase of the contest helped decide things, as they had slammed into padded walls during the “Rumble in the Big Brother Jungle” competition. Hayden and Lane had to guess how many times they were slammed against the walls, and none of them got close to the answer of 250. But since Hayden came the closest, with 91, he was the new HoH.
This was the first sign as to who won the Big Brother 12 finale, as Hayden would get to beat Lane again in the finals after he evicted Enzo. It then came down to a jury vote of past evictees, which Hayden won by a 4-3 margin. Although Hayden eliminated Enzo, perhaps he made the difference by voting for him, since Lane hinted he might have evicted him too if he won HoH.
Since Hayden won the Big Brother 12 finale, he took the grand prize of $500,000, while Lane settled for $50,000. All of the three finalists helped form “The Brigade” alliance to get this far, but in the end, only one could benefit from it.
The other prize went to Britney Haynes, who won the $25,000 award for “America’s Favorite Houseguest.” This victory came just in time, as Haynes had a rough week after being eliminated in the last episode,and having her house back in Arkansas burn down yesterday.
Now that they have answered who won Big Brother 12, the house will stay vacant until a 13’h season gets under way. Meanwhile, CBS now gets to fill their Wednesday night reality TV slot with the new Survivor.
